Listen to this reality check from Greg Gibson from his website Our Finite, Human Brains Can’t Fully Understand the Supernatural, Divine, Infinite, Omniscient Mind of God

If we could fully understand God with our finite, human brains, then He would have to be like us, and therefore not worthy of human worship. When trying to contemplate the One Who existed eternally, and Who made the universe, we shouldn’t be surprised if He tells us that His thoughts are bigger than ours...

"Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?... therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know" (Job 38:1-42:6)

"Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it." (Ps. 145:6)

"His understanding is unsearchable." (Is. 40:28)

"My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, ...says the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, & My thoughts than your thoughts." (Is. 55:9)

"Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor?" (Rom. 11:33-34)

"I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?" (1 Cor. 1:19-20)
